Hi Stephen P. King

doesn't have to be real, it's purely an a priori,

Please think deeply about what exactly it means to "calculate such a
universe in perfect harmony". It only makes sense to me that such a calculation
is equivalent to solving a NP-Hard problem with an infinity of variables. I
agree that we do seem to observe a harmonious universe, but only if we do not
look too closely. When we look closely, we do see a disharmony: Observations of
violation of Bell's Theorem.
